Upcoming MLB All Star Game & Surprises

As the All Star Game is almost one month away, there as been a ton of surprises so far this season.

1. Miami Marlins:
They've been very surprising so far. They also picked a stud in Tyler Kolek, a  6'5" right hander who can throw 97-99 mph consisently. Giancarlo Stanton with the power surge of 17 homers so far, the Marlins are in a good spot.

2. Tampa Bay Rays:
Uhh what's up Rays? 24-42, they also hired "The Rainman", a 72 year old Seminole tribesmen thought to have brought "supernatural powers to the team" What?  Bobby Henry walked around the field, then promptly said that "They are ready to go" Maddon also hired a DJ, got a penguin, a snake and other interesting items to loosen the team up. Weird.

3. Toronto Blue Jays
12 games above .500, the Blue Jays are streaking! They could be a dangerous threat to contend for the World Series. Edwin Encarnacion has 20 homers and 53 RBIs and he is a monster. If they keep going like this, the AL East will be theirs.
